The Freud Memorial Lecture and Reception

Thursday 6th May 2010 7pm

Leadership – Theory and Practice

Michael Brearley

How do leaders and leadership skills facilitate the functioning of a work group, a team or an organisation? How are groups constituted and what undermines them? What are the emotional bonds that bind people together in a common enterprise? And what are the functions of leadership?

These are some of the questions that Mike Brearley will address on the day of the general election in his Freud Memorial lecture, drawing on his diverse experience as former England cricket captain and (a far more dangerous undertaking) President of the British Psychoanalytical Society.

Mike Brearley is a psychoanalyst and sports journalist. He studied philosophy at Cambridge University at undergraduate and post-graduate level while pursuing a career as a County cricketer with Middlesex. As England captain he won 17 of 31 games, losing only 4, an outstanding record that has never been bettered. He was awarded the OBE in 1978 and published The Art of Captaincy in 1985. He works in private practice in London, and teaches and writes on psychoanalysis.

Venue: The Anna Freud Centre, Maresfield Gardens NW3, followed by a reception at the Freud Museum.

£25 / £20 Friends and students. Booking essential.
